- New ultra low latency Fibre based solution to Zurich, delivering market leading latency
- Service is live, with latency performance 9% better than other providers
London, UNITED KINGDOM – 21 May 2015 – euNetworks, Europe’s bandwidth infrastructure provider, today announced it has launched a fibre based solution from Frankfurt to Zurich, with dedicated low latency dense wave division multiplexing (DWDM) technology. Delivering market leading latency, this route extends euNetworks’ existing London to Frankfurt fibre based route to Equinix’s ZH2 International Business ExchangeTM (IBX®) data centre in Zurich and delivers a latency 9% lower than the prior best Frankfurt to Zurich fibre based routes.
The new low latency route provides financial services firms with direct access to Zurich- Equinix ZH4, where SIX Swiss Exchange is hosted, from London, with round trip delay of 12.58 milliseconds, and from Equinix’s Frankfurt data centre (FR2), with round trip delay of 4.65 milliseconds. euNetworks offers market leading latency performance from all major Multilateral Trading Facilities (MTFs) across Europe, enabling greater access to its euTrade service portfolio and some of the shortest routes in the market today. euNetworks first began offering ultra-low latency services to Zurich in May 2011.
In February 2015, euNetworks also optimised their key London to Frankfurt low latency route, with an improvement of -0.18ms round trip delay. This has extended their leadership position over competing routes, as well as benefiting their London to Zurich and London to Milan euTrade services.
“These developments underline euNetworks’ ongoing commitment to invest in and optimise low latency services and additionally to growing our Swiss market presence.” said Kevin Dean, Chief Marketing Officer at euNetworks. “We continue to see strong demand for our euTrade service and whilst Zurich has been a steady market for us, this sees us take the market leading position and deliver a highly differentiated solution.”
“Since acquiring FibreLac (now euNetworks SA) in October 2014, we have been working through network integration. This development also marks a key milestone along that path, connecting our Swiss national wavelength capability back to our pan-European core. We expect to follow this up with further investments in our Swiss business this year”, continued Dean.
